I stayed at the Flamingo between March 10-17 of 2012 and I can honestly say that I was very impressed with it. They had 2 pools (1 heated) and 1 hot tub. It was clean and the staff did everything they could to make sure that everyone had a good stay. They were friendly and very helpful. There were many other spring breakers there but the noise wasn't a big issue. It's a short walk from the hotel to Pier Park, a great little outdoor mall, and a ten minute walk the other way if you want to go to the seafood restaurant and bar called Sharky's. There isn't a large crowd on the beach closest to the hotel so you always can find a prime spot if you're going to sunbathe, swim, or just play on the beach. However, if a larger crowd is more your thing, take a short walk to either side of the beach and you'll find more of a party scene.
I'd advise this for families. The hotel offers a good family environment while letting you have a gorgeous room from your hotel balcony. It's a good place to unwind, relax, and enjoy the beautiful weather of Panama City Beach.
